The dock itself provides expandable video output through VGA or DVI, 5.1 surround-sound, five USB ports and a 10/100 Ethernet port. USD200.

Looks nice to fondle…

1966, Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke commission Hamilton (as well as other companies) to imagine & design futuristic products for the year 2001 and to be featured in the film, “2001 A Space Odyssey.” So Hamilton and John Bergey (creator of the first digital quartz watch) creates a digital clock and analog/digital wristwatch

Only 2001 will be made, cast from Titanium, fit with an automatic movement, sapphire crystal and three sideview registers for Home Time, Dream Time, and GMT. They are now analog unlike the digital display from the original.

Homer Dashboard Driver

October 10, 2006


Homer Simpson sticks to your dashboard and talks in response to your cars movements or at the press of a button…all in Homer’s real character voice!

Comments include: “Yeah yeah, quit your waving.  I’ll move through the intersection when I’m good and ready. Officer.”

“Car turning into Krusty Burger. Powerless to resist!”

“Your child might be an honours student, but you’re a moron!”

“What is it?  National Stupid Drivers Day?”

“Red light turn green….now….now….okay….now…..it worked!”

“Why don’t you come here and say that, huh? That’s what I thought, turn your walker around and hobble away granny!”

It’s only £7.99, so if you got agitated by it, you can either switch it off or throw it out of the window. They even have Yoda and Darth Vader versions…
